Risk of subsequent tumour recurrence and stage progression in bacille Calmette-Guerin relapsing non-muscle-invasive bladder cancer
BJU International, 05/21/2012
Matsumoto K et al. – An additional course of bacille Calmette–Guerin (BCG) instillation might be effective in patients with BCG–relapsing tumours with pathologically intermediate risk. Nevertheless, some patients with high–risk pathological features developed subsequent stage progression. Such patients should be followed up closely and counselled on the need for aggressive therapeutic options, such as radical cystectomy.
